What Makes Our Program Special
Radford University’s School of Nursing offers an online Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program to prepare registered nurses who currently hold a bachelor’s degree in nursing science, a master’s degree or a master’s degree in nursing science for advanced nursing practice.
The program is distance-based to promote maximum flexibility while maintaining quality. Theory and research-based courses prepare our graduates to work in a variety of settings, and to provide leadership in health care.
The program culminates in a residency tailor-made to the student’s learning needs and career goals. Upon completion of the DNP program, graduates are eligible for Family Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and Nurse Leadership. The DNP program offers the required clinical and didactic courses in all concentrations and more than 1,000 clinical hours.
